media conglomeration is so passe.

time, inc's unabashed spinelessness in turning over information regarding the valarie plame leak in order to keep one of its reporters from going to jail is actually even worse than it looks on its face. see, time is awaiting antitrust approval for its acquisition of adelphia communication's cable assets, and has a "deferred prosecution agreement" with the justice dept. regarding accounting fraud over at aol. this means they can't rock the boat, not even for freedom of the press. what bastards. let's hope the new york times can hold out. and ps to prosecutors: what about robert novak???
